This place was great! you pretty much have half of the house to yourself. In the morning Billie leaves muffins and coffee to make in the living room, we had the bathroom to ourselves and the hot tube was phenomenal. Billie was super friendly and helpful. Would recommend this place.

Billie's house is very close to the Cliff Walk and the International Tennis Hall of Fame. It was perfect for our stay. While we didn't actually get to use it, the fact that there was a hot tub available was awesome!

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Billie's place. We had a good amount of privacy and only ran into other guests once. The room and house were clean and it was nice to have coffee, muffins, and greek yogurt every morning. The place is also only a 5 minute drive from downton newport and overall had a good stay with no issues.

My girlfriend and i were looking for a budget friendly place to spend a weekend in newport, and we hit the jackpot with billie. The house is an old new england charm, and the hot tub was a huge bonus! I proposed to my girlfriend during our stay and when we told billie she ran out and got us a noce bottle of wine to celebrate. I would recommend her to anyone looking at a cost friendly, beautiful house to spend a few nights in!
